QtDevDays 2012 event // Here comes your Event Name edit
- About the event
- What kind of people come to the event? Business people and developers
- How technical is the event? very in-depth technical sessions
- How much is it about 'open source'? Most people know but it is not a central theme
- Attendance Details
- Tell us about the event, what did you do and how did it go? I initially wanted to go one evening but due to a communication issue I had to volunteer and be there three days from 8:00 to 18:00
- Did you have a booth and how did that work? We had no booth.
- did we meet noteworthy people?
- There was a KDE meeting as well as a Qt marketing meeting. I talked to both about collaboration with openSUSE. If we want to focus more on technical people in the future, this is an event to go to. We can probably get a booth quite easily. There is of course lots of Windows and Mac and embedded business there but 'the desktop is not dead' as a few vendors said and I they seem serious.
- What can we improve for the future...
- Would you go again? If we (openSUSE or SUSE) are interested in targeting developers or small and medium businesses (or both) it would be a good idea to be at this event. Otherwise not. And make sure we know what the 'rules' are...
- What more can you do to make it better? We could probably have a booth.
- Any interesting topic you heard: The Qt project is just setting up some marketing. We can probably work with them on that.
- Any feedback from outside: Quite a number of people is using openSUSE there. We can and should do more to work with and for them!
